The older I get, the more I realize how important it is to have true friends.
It can be so temping to want to know so many people, and have TONS of “friends”, but do those people truly know you? Do they truly care about you?
Friendships come and go, that’s just a part of life and growing up.
But I pray everyone is able to find a friend who stands by you no matter what. Whether it’s a painful season, distance, business, or even when things are going great. That person who still makes an effort to be in your life; that is a true friend.
A hard part about friendships and growing up; sometimes we have to walk away from toxic relationships.
Yikes. Not an easy thing to do.
I know, I’ve had to do it.
When someone we’re around us continually brings us down, sucks the life out of us, is abusive (mentally, emotionally, physically), or doesn’t allow us to be our best selves. As harsh as it may sound, you may need to cut that person off from having a say in your life.
I’ve had to cut toxic people out of my life; and I’m not going to tell you that it’s easy, because it’s not. In fact it was really hard. Sometimes I felt like a failure!
But now that I have, I can definitely say that I am a much healthier person because I walked away.
Be the person you wish was your friend.
